THE TILLER OF THESOIL.
A hardy, sunburnt man is he
, . A hardy, sunburnt man :
No sturdier man you'll ever sec,
Though all the world you scan.
In summer's heat, in winter's cold,
You'll find him at iiis toil
Oh, far above the knights of old,
Is thb Tiller of the Soil.
He trudges out at break of day;
And takes his way along;
And as he:turns the yielding clay;
, ' He sings a joyful song.
Ho is no dull unhappy wight,
Bound in misfortune's coil ;
The smile is bright, the heart is light,
Of the Tiller of the soil.
And when the orb of day has crown'd
. With gold tho western sky,
Before Jlis dwelling he is found,
With cheerful faces by
Willi little laughing duplicates,
Caresses will not spoil;
Oh, joy at every side awaits
Tiic Tiller of the Soil.
.A hardy, sunburnt man is he;
A hardy, sunburnt man;
But who can boast a hand so free,
As he, the Tiller, can?
Nor summer's heat, nor winter's cold,
The pow'r has him to foil
Oil, far above the knights of old;
Is the Tiller of the Soil.
